International symposium on fisheries sustainability: Strengthening the science-policy nexus

9-21 November 2019
Rome, Italy

​​​​The objective of this symposium is to identify pathways to strengthen the science and policy interplay in fisheries production, management and trade, based on solid sustainability principles for improved outcomes on the ground. Ultimately, the debates and conclusions of the symposium will prepare the way for the development of a new vision for capture fisheries, outlining how the sector can respond to the complex and rapidly changing challenges facing society.
 
Expected outputs:

  • develop and articulate a new vision for fisheries’ sustainability in the 21st century
  • promote strategies for synergistic actions and supportive policies, at all levels, to promote sustainable fisheries while meeting international commitments
  • reinforce commitments to the FAO Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries and its associated instruments, leading to new FAO partnerships
  • assist countries at COFI 34 as they debate and consider a new COFI Sub-Committee on Fisheries Management
